Advacam s.r.o.

Advacam s.r.o., A spin-off from the Medipix collaborations, bringing the next generation of radiation imaging detectors to the scientific and industrial market. All their cameras count individual photons in each pixel while measuring energy of the detected radiation. To achieve this they use the technologies from Medipix2, Medipix3 and Timepix3. In 2016 Advacam delivered a small particle tracking detector to NASA, scheduled to fly to the International Space Station in March 2017. Read more

Medipix3 allows ‘colour’ imaging during CT scans, or so-called spectral imaging. By sending X-rays of different energies through the object being examined, the Medipix3 chip can detect the photons one-by-one, categorising them according to their energy, thus providing information about the density and the atomic structure of a tissue. For example, while regular non-colour X-ray images from CT scans may show the difference between bones and soft tissue, spectral imaging is better able to distinguish between different materials of similar density. This aids medical staff with diagnosis, as...Read more

Quantum Detectors

Quantum Detectors, a spin-off from the Medipix Collaboration, was founded to promote a wider exploitation of detectors developed for synchrotron radiation, LASER and other large scale facility applications. Their product, the Merlin photon counting detector system is based on the Medipix3 ASIC. Recently they have adapted the Merlin for electron microscopy applications, in collaboration with the University of Glasgow.Read more
